[ARCHIVED] Health Department Begins Seasonal Flu Vaccination


BURLINGTON – Flu season has arrived and the Alamance County Health Department (ACHD) wants to make sure The Flu Ends with U! Beginning Monday, October 4, the health department will begin offering seasonal flu shots to the public.

The cost for the seasonal flu shot is $20.00. The health department will file health insurance claims for most patients. However, some exceptions may apply. Shots will be given on a walk-in basis, Monday-Friday (excluding holidays and county government furlough days), at the following times: 8:30 A.M. – 11:00 A.M. 1:30 P.M. – 4:00 P.M.

This year’s seasonal vaccine contains several strains of influenza, including H1N1. Therefore, one shot is all most people will need. Children under age 9, who have not previously been vaccinated against the flu, may need two doses.

Clients with internet access can visit or follow us on Twitter at for up-to-the-minute flu clinic updates and information on special clinic hours, if needed.

For general flu vaccine questions or specific questions regarding the filing of a particular insurance or Medicare plan for flu shots, please call the health department at (336) 227-0101.

Remember, The Flu Ends with U! Don’t forget to wash your hands often; use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer; cover coughs and sneezes with a disposable tissue or your sleeve; and stay home when sick.
